Nicalis, Inc. has announced that The Binding of Isaac: Repentance has received a huge new update, bringing the DLC in line with the PC version of the game.

Version 1.78 brings a plethora of gameplay changes, which we know you can’t wait to experience. With that in mind, we’ll just let the list speak for itself:

– “Something scary” has appeared in the Ashpit!
– Lazarus now returns to his normal form when he goes to the next floor, recovering his extra life if he lost it
– Lazarus now gains a permanent +0.5 bonus each time he transforms into his resurrected form
– Lazarus now only loses 1 heart container when he transforms into his reanimated form, this cannot drop him below 1 heart container
– Increased the damage multiplier of the reanimated form of Lazarus to 1.4 (was 1.2)
– Reduced the duration of the temporary damage bonus granted by Lazarus’ birthright from 3 minutes to 1, but this bonus is granted each time Lazarus transforms into his resurrected form
– ??? now gets evil deals at a reduced cost and starts with an innate Lil Larva effect (destroying poop spawns 1 blue fly)
– Mom’s Razor and Backstabber bleed effects now deal damage based on how fast an enemy moves (faster enemies take more damage). When an enemy bleeds, it leaves behind a creep that damages other enemies. Effects can now also be applied to bosses.
– Mom’s Razor now blocks projectiles and can damage bosses
